Freedoms by Steve Harewood

-Nice pair of Freedoms from the 70s, firstly this mid 70s 7'2 singlefin from Alex's collection, clean lines and clean condition, a fun board for overhead waves, possibly made for sale in France as Alex thinks the bird was the logo of the Atlantico surf shop in Lacanau. Freedom had a strong prescence in France with a shop in Biarritz.








Dressed for a night on the town are top Jersey surfer Gordon Burgis, Freedom co founder Barry Jenkins, co founder of BSA Dave Grimshaw and last but not least Steve Harewood, late 60s. With guys like these its no wonder Jersey had a strong surf scene.




Steve Harewood 6'3 twinnie from the late 70s ,bought by present owner 2nd hand from Tiki surf shop , Braunton in 1984. Obviously not oversurfed and with nice original multi fins.
